A recently proposed scaling theory of heavy fermions is used to analyze experimental results on CeRu 2Si 2 under external applied pressure. We examine susceptibility and resistivity data up to approximately 8 kbars, to obtain relations between the exponents characterizing the quantum critical behavior of this system due to its proximity to a zero temperature magnetic instability.
